Details

The Golden Lotus, like the flower for which it was named, has a serene beauty drawn from her white woods and traditional ribbed sails. Her interior is luxuriously bedecked with fine dark hued timbers and Aurelian décor, creating a overall stunning visage of gilded elegance. The Golden Lotus opens direct to the sky with spacious sundeck on which guests may soak up the sunlight and watch spectacular sunsets with fine beverage in hand. While the ship and its facilities have been built to match international standards of quality, overall it maintains a rustic ambience owing to its faithfulness to traditional style.

Day 1: Ha Noi - Ha Long

8.00     After you have been collected from your hotel the drive begins across the lush farmlands, iconic ricefields and small country towns of the Red River Delta.

12.15     Following your arrival in Ha Long city you will embark upon Golden Lotus cruise for your overnight journey. After check in, enjoy a welcome drink as you are introduced to the crew and briefed on cruise procedures

13.00    The boat heads towards the quiet beauty of the Bai Tu Long bay area. Passing by the windows are  a succession of aptly named islets; see if you can spot Teapot islet, Monster Face islet, Yen Ngua islet, Man’s Head islet and Tortoise islet along the way. As you marvel at the virgin beauty of the crystal waters and rocky mounts shrouded in endemic greenery, lunch is served in the dining area. Early afternoon will be spent at Sung Sot (amazing) cave, where you will wander through vast caverns dripping with stalactites and walled with cascades of glittering rock, all masterfully illuminated by colored lights. Follow this with a swim at the Soi Sim or Titop beaches and a short climb to the top of Titop mountain and one of the best views of Halong bay.

15.30     Enjoy fresh fruit back onboard and delight in the masterful carving of vegetables and fruits into works of art.

8.00  
  Time for kayaking to the nearby caves and lagoons.

Explore a nearby fishing village for a better understanding of the lives and lifestyles of the local people.

9.30     Arrange your luggage for check out. Spend the remainder of the journey back to the mainland on the sundeck, watching as the islets slip one by one back into the horizon.

I was picked up around 8:30 at my hotel heading with a nice A/C Van to Halong. Our tour-guide was funny and enthusiastic. Quick transfer to Golden Lotus Junk about lunch time. We were a nice international group cruising around Halong bay’s natural limestone mountains, exploring the caves etc with ample time to rest and savour in the beauty of the region. Excellent facilities, nice and clean bathroom, well maintained boat, delicious food (meat/veggie). Tai Chi Class, Kayaking and Karaoke in the evening was really fun. The pleasant staff made this experience truly wonderful. I can highly recommend the Golden Lotus Junk to anyone who wishes to see Halong Bay!
